The Lima Fire Department trains twice a month on various life saving tasks so that we are better prepared to help you, and our community, in your time of need.

Interior Drill

Pictured are members of the Lima Fire Department conducting interior firefighter training. The interior firefighters are performing search and rescue opeations, simulating a firefighter that as been trapped while fighting a fire. The nomex hoods that are covering the firefighter's masks prevent them from seeing where they are going during the search to closer simulate a smoke filled building.

Monthly Drill

The members of the Lima Fire Department conducted their monthly drill (September 2013) at Elim Bible College in Lima. They set up a pumper drafting from the pond and supplied the ladder truck with water for water tower operations. Monthly drills are held to make sure that all of our firefighters are proficient in the tasks that are needed to safely and effectively do our jobs.

Jaws Drill

The members of the Lima Fire Department conducted a simulated 2 car MVA in which one car had to be lifted off of the other to remove the patient trapped inside. The firefighters used "Res-Q-Jacks," chains, and ratchet straps specially designed for firefighting to life the one car off of the other to rescue the trapped occupant.

Ladder Bail Out Training

The members of the Lima Fire Department went to the Lakeville, NY training tower to conduct ladder bail out training. This is a life saving skill that our interior firefighters need to practice so that they can exit a building quickly if conditions make interior firefighting extremely dangerous.
